Question about Samsung RF265AA Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator

1 Answer

Hi. My fridge is about a month old. Although we have the freezer set at 8 degrees (the warmest it will set to), the freezer is extremely cold. Ice cream becomes rock hard (we can't even cut it with a knife). Can it be adjusted? Thanks, Pat

This is not an adjustment issue, this is a malfunction issue. If you have a thermometer that you can place in the freezer, as opposed to any temperature readings from the freezer itself, your temps would normally be around 0 degrees F. At the warmest freezer settings, you should be around 10 degrees, which would make your ice cream very scoopable. I would contact the store you purchased it at or Samsung for a refrigerator repair service as soon as possible before they tell you its no longer covered under warranty.

Fridge Ices Up Even on the Warmest Setting (Freezer Working Fine)


Sounds like the cold control has stuck . Unplug the two wires from the cold control and plug them together. Turn one wire over and plug it into the other. away from the cold control.
If it runs then that cold control is the problem.

Why do freezer coils ice up on my Stainless Steel Whirlpool refrigerator (model GB2SHDXTS)?


On your model your cntrl board has a relay that can stick causing the compressor to always run even when the unit is turned off or in defrost. turn the fridge off, move the temp of the freezer to it's warmest setting and it should display a line in the freezer and fridge temp display. listen to hear if the compressor is running in back of the unit. if it is you need part number: 12868513

The cold control needs replacing. Thats the knob with the numbers that turn the Ref OFF and ON.
What I do is call my local Appliance Parts Store with my model no. They are extremely helpful .
Get freezer and ref thermometer. Ref is probably too cold.
Freezer should be 0 to 10 degrees. Ref 33 to 35

THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP

REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

Turned the fridge temperature up (ie. from 3 to 6) but fridge warmer than ever. Gauge on side ambiguous. Now wondering whether 1 is actually the coldest and 6 the warmest. Help! Fridge old so can't trace...


Keeping 3 to 5 degree is good. But check freezer is frosting good. If ice formation around the freezer is over, it will abstract the fan by functioning. If so, check defrost timer, thermostat and heater for not malfunctioning.If defrost cycle is good, there would be constant cool in fridge compartment.
Thanks.

I had the same problem. my freezer was set too cold so the water inlet was freezing. what I did was blew a hairdryer into the ice making section for a couple minutes, this seemed to melt the block, then tested that it was clear by forcing the ice tray through a cycle. you then need to set your freezer warmer - I find setting it 2 bars from the warmest setting keeps stuff frozen and the ice coming :) hope this helps!!

Fridge running at higher than 4 degrees.


I have the same problem with my F&P fridge/freezer although I'm not sure how old it is because I bought it from my landlord when he moved out. I call the repairman who said turn it off and defrost the freezer. I turned it off last night, defrosted the freezer as there was some ice build up internally at the rear and turned it on again. It went fine, I set it at the coldest (gauge on colder) setting and this morning it was quite cold. Today I get home from work and it's hardly cold, no condensation on the lemonade or beer bottles! Will be interested to hear others thoughts before I call the repair man again. thanks, Jenny

Freezer is cold but not keeping icecream frozen.


If, the fresh food section is 34- 38 degrees, then the freezer should be cold enough to keep ice cream solid. All of the cooling capability comes from the freezer section. I, personally, would not waste time or money on a ten year old box. Ten years ago it cost $1000, so, the outlay is $100 per year. Dump the old refrigerator and get a new one.

Frigidaire side by side doesn't make ice


If the Temperature in the Freezer is not cold enough, the Ice maker will not make ice. Make sure the freezer is below 10 degrees or so. Zero is where you want it for the best ice production. What was the reason for defrosting in the first place? Should be frost free?
